- At The Ecole, we instill in our students the lifetime benefits of a bilingual education, empowering them to create and connect to a world filled with possibilities. Located in New York`s vibrant Flatiron District, our intimate and independent French-American school cultivates an internationally-minded community of students. From Maternelle to Middle School, we artfully blend the best of the French and American educational systems, gifting our students with deep academic bi- literacy, whole-child skills and knowledge, and an optimistic, multi-cultural perspective. Through their illuminating journey, students grow more flexible and fluid, interested and interesting, persistent and positive.

- At The Ecole, we believe that the goal of education is to develop well-informed, well-rounded, responsible and compassionate-in a word, "enlightened"-students who can create and connect to a world filled with possibilities. This belief is at the heart of our uniquely-designed bilingual program, in which students learn to not just speak, read, and write in two languages, but also to think, feel, and act in ways that are informed by two cultures. To always see, explore, and understand the world around them from two perspectives is the gift of the deeply bi-literate student, succinctly captured in our school`s motto, "Light through language".
- Artfully blending the curriculum requirements and pedagogical approaches of the French and American systems, our native-speaking faculty create rich academic environments for a diverse, international student body. From Maternelle through Middle School, students at The cole are guided through the core language arts, social studies, math, and sciences content, as well as character and cultural enrichment, in both French and English, for all subjects. In our intimate classroom settings, or out in New York City`s many artistic and historical institutions, using traditional and technology-based techniques, our teachers aspire to provide individual and group bilingual learning opportunities that engage, challenge, inspire-and illuminate.

As the COVID-19 virus spreads throughout the United States, we look at steps schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
